Category: Flash News — By

DC Comics’ EiC Bob Harras dropped a few hints yesterday about what’s in store for the DC Universe in 2012. Those wondering just what’s going on with Kid Flash — is he still from the future? — still related to Barry? — will be glad to hear that answers are on their way:

And what exactly is Kid Flash’s story? TEEN TITANS will explore that mystery early next year.

Poll: What’s Your Favorite Flash Story of 2011?

Category: Fandom, Timely — By


I thought this was going to be a shorter list, but then I remembered a bunch of guest spots from earlier in the year. (I’ve probably missed a few, and I deliberately didn’t include Justice League since it’s a team book & not a Flash spotlight.)

If you have any problems voting here on Speed Force, or you just want to see the results, you can view the poll at Twtpoll.

Flash #4 Preview is Up!

Category: Flash News — By

The LA Times blog Hero Complex has a four-page preview of The Flash #4, arriving in stores next week. The preview sheds more light on Manuel Lago, and begins the origin of Mob Rule.

Tip: I found that the slideshow viewer makes the pages too small to read. Fortunately, they provided direct links to the images at the end of the article.

The Rogues in DC Universe Online (Pictures)

Category: Flash News — By

Johnny Wellens sent in these screen captures of the Rogues and other Flash Villains in the DCUO: Lightning Strikes game expansion.

He comments:

Here are The Rogues as they appear in DC Universe Online. I have only two issues. Why is Piper a villain again and why does Professor Zoom have Zoom’s costume? No answers from the developers on these decisions at this time. But I can tell you that it is so much fun to run around Central City, Metropolis, and Gotham looking for The Rogues.

I haven’t played the game myself, but it looks great — and like great fun!
